Cornwall Express - in Devon

Thanks to Jeff Lloyd who sent this photo from his collection of one of Plymouth's long serving Leyland Olympians in one of the many liveries carried by this batch of buses. A750VAF is in the colourful Cornwall Express livery from around 1986/1987 known by many as the Captain Birdseye livery. These were always comfortable buses and worked well on the longer runs like the X80. The livery carried was for the excellent Cornwall Express services which meant a ride on one of these fine buses all the way down into deepest Cornwall. Sadly its less easy these days.
